CZ 40B

Does anyone know much about the mechanical durability of this gun, the alloy frame in particular with the 40 S&W cartridge? I have an all steel CZ 75B in 9mm and I like the gun a lot, and I am seriously thinking about buying a CZ 40B. Thanks

I've had one, and am a moderator on the CZ-Forum. I get a chance to see a lot of messages about a lot of guns, including the CZ-40Bs.

The 40B seems to be one of the most durable of the CZs, with virtually no problems reported. Period.

I've never heard of frame problems with any of the CZs that were imported ot the US.

(There was a batch of PCRs produced for the police in the Czech Republic that had problems, and their failure and analysis led to the development of the P-01, a very robust gun.)

I don't think there's anything to worry about. The metallurgy is very simmilar to the compact alloy CZ, which are also proving very durable.
